Commonwealth Artists Student Theatre Will Present a Drive-In Production of NEWSIES

Commonwealth Artists Student Theatre will present a drive-in production of Newsies July 17-26.

The show will take place at CONEY ISLAND, 6201 Kellogg Ave. Cincinnati, OH 45230.

New York City, 1899. Jack Kelly and his ragtag team of newsboys make a meager living selling newspapers on the city streets. But when the prices of "papes" are hiked and the newsies are hung out to dry, there is nothing left to do but "open the gates and seize the day!"

Led by charismatic Jack and independent, young newspaper reporter Katherine Plummer, the Newsies form a union and organize a strike against the greedy publisher of the New York World. Can a group of idealistic newsboys win against a foe as powerful as acclaimed publisher Joseph Pulitzer?

With a funny, poignant book by Harvey Feirstein and stunning music by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, Newsies is a classic with the power to inspire.
